look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head. Sticky lacing is decent.

S - Smell is kind of sour, sort of like a Flemish brown ale. Little to no pumpkin or spices.

T - Not terrible it's sour like a Flemish brown ale with a sweet malt finish and MAYBE some cinnamon flavor. Where is the pumpkin? Where is the all spice?

M - Light and very drinkable.

Overall I am confused with this beer. Pours and tastes like a sour brown ale. I guess it's not terrible since it doesn't have much vegital (pumpkin) flavor but I expected more spice. Passable.

Grabbed a single of this brew which was included a variety pack of only pumpkin beers. Logged on and stoked to see I'm the second one to review this little puppy. Let's see how it matches up.

Appearance: Very dark and cloudy. Has only a subutle hint of an orange, amber haze. From the looks, I would have guessed this to be a stout. Impressed so far.

Smell: Has notes of slight pumpkin aroma and spices. Seems to have a light body/taste. Just comes up yo be just an average pumpkin ale.

Taste: Light flavor. Presents a crisp, and straight forward taste of spices and some pumpkin, but not a in your face kind of flavor. Bitter hops and possibly pumpkin mash finish out the palate. Very average.

Mouthfeel: Medium to almost light flavor and body. Medium carbonation. Not wildy impressed with this beer, but it does present some mild spices and pumpkin flavors. Most likely will not have again, but I would recommend it to a friend if they were looking for a beer to sip on all night and not worry about an overwhelming barrage of spice and pumpkin. Cheers!

This poured out as a brown color with a white head on top. The suds fade away leaving a ring around the glass. The smell of the beer is spicy, not too much in way of hops or malts. The taste has a little bit of toasted malt in there but is mostly full of pumpkin spice flavors The mouthfeel of the beer is decent but nothing too impressive, it's lighter bodied and could use some additional heaviness to it. Overall the beer is drinkable, it's decent to me but nothing I would look forward too each year.

First had: bottle from Pinocchio's Beer Garden, Media, PA

Does a brewery [other than Elysian] really need three separate pumpkin beers? Hmm.

Labeled as being brewed and bottled at Cooperstown Brewery. Wow, must be a tiny operation to have to operate out of the also-tiny Cooperstown Brewery. Poured surprisingly dark, a rusty burnt orange-brown color with a finger or so of foamy beige head. Aroma is somewhat distant, toasted malts, brown sugar, cinnamon, lightly vegetal. Taste of caramrel malts, nutty, toasted grains, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, distant muted pumpkin flesh. Definitely more spice than pumpkin here, and even the spice was not too pronounced. Medium body, fairly dry in the finish, came off almost like a spiced brown ale. Not bad, but not great.
